About this Blog

Konichiwa,



Via this Blog you should be able to figure out why it is so much fun to Cruise Japan.



And get all that information you'll need to tackle The Paper Work (PW) you'll be hit with, even before you make landfall.



Other boats have been here before and:



ALL complained about the PW (hey, the officials just do their job) but it's all done for free,

ALL are so pleased they have come here...so most have come-back plans.



If you need more info, go the right hand side of this Blog, there is a list of Blogs...


As yet the links are to the boat's HP and so you'll have to roam around a bit to find that Japan Info.



Happy reading and see you at the sushi bar!

Haul-out facility for a catamaran in Fukuoka, Japan

In case you are looking for a haul-out facility for a catamaran 
( max 45 feet loa, max 16 Ton),
please take a look at the next pictures...








Pictures showing a Lagoon 42.
( a Lagoon 45 also used the trailer, but is top-limit). 

This might be the one and only purpose built 
catamaran trailer in Japan.
Between 2 hours before and after high-tide 
the boat can be hauled/launched.

Cruising notes by SV Takaraboshi


Yachtsman Paul Tsai is the owner of
32 ft sailing vessel Takaraboshi. 

Paul created this handy short cruising note as he has been cruising extensively North Kyushu.
Takaraboshi's  homeport is Odo Marina in Fukuoka.

The text is in Japanese, but pictures tell the story.
I think it's a useful addition to other cruising notes.
